The subscription level you need is based on the number of unique products you plan on selling. A unique GTIN and barcode is required for every size, flavour and variation (such as low-fat or sugar-free) of your products. If you're not sure how many GTINs and barcodes you're going to need, use our simple GTIN Estimator to help figure it out.

* Your subscription and associated license is valid for 12 months and automatically renews annually, unless written notice is received at least 60 days prior to the license expiration.
